An enquiry was held to consider why Roger Varian was running Waleydd (GB) here at Newbury on going described as Heavy, having declared the colt a non-runner at Nottingham on 16 October 2019 on ground with the same official description.
The trainer’s representative stated that they declared hoping for better ground on this occasion, however, due to the recent rainfall, the going had deteriorated.
She added that the Owner wanted to run the colt on the turf before the end of the season, so was happy for Waleydd (GB) to take its chance today.
Approximately 1 ½ furlongs out, Amir Kabir (GB), unplaced, and Mishriff (IRE), placed third, bumped on several occasions when racing tight and attempting to take the same run, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Approaching 1 furlong out, Amir Kabir (GB), unplaced, ridden by Jason Watson, hung right-handed, despite the best efforts of Watson, briefly hampering Jellystone (IRE), unplaced, but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.
Following the race, Jason Watson reported that Amir Kabir (GB), unplaced, hung right-handed in the closing stages.
